Result from a scientific outreach activity, developed with the Universidad de Sevilla through the Group of Interdisciplinary Physics, based in the Higher Technical School of Engineering, that consists in the generation and edition of a set of videos that allows us to appreciate the true three-dimensional disposition of the sets of stars that we call constellations. As seen from the Earth, they seem to be drawn on the celestial dome and evoke figures of animals or imaginary beings. However, the stars that compose them are not small bright spots, but gigantic bodies emitting large amounts of energy in the form of electromagnetic radiation. Located at enormous distances from each other, the stars form groups that can only be understood correctly if they are seen in 3D.
